I have been teaching at Granite Bay High School since 1999. My wife, Cami Cordell, teaches at the Adult School in the RJUHSD. My three boys have all attended Woodcreek High School. I love to spend my free time with my family and friends.
I believe that all students are capable of developing their creativity. Art classes help individuals develop problem solving and critical thinking skills. Taking an art class allows students to find balance and relaxation, while developing sophisticated and meaningful works of art.
All of the following courses are approved for “F” VAPA credit.
Art 1 (Grades 9-12) - a drawing and painting course for beginners as well as experienced artists.
Ceramics 1 (Grades 9-12) - pottery and hand-building sculpture for beginners as well as experienced artists.
Ceramics 2 (Grades 10-12) - advanced course to develop creativity and skills.
AP Art History (Grades 11-12) - a college-level course with no prerequisite and no art background required. Students must have the desire to learn about the art and architecture of cultures from around the world. This course prepares students for the College Board AP Art History exam in May.
“We look at art to learn about others. We create art to learn about ourselves.”
